Profiles and Permissions in Shiftplan

Modified on Mon, 19 Dec, 2022 at 4:44 PM

The profiles and permissions feature in Kenjo helps you decide on the level of permissions available for different people in your company based on their job roles. 

The Shiftplan functionality also makes use of this and is currently available for the HR Admin, Admin, and Standard Manager profiles. 

This means that if you have an employee who manages the shift planning for one or multiple teams, they need to have one of these profiles to be able to use the various Shiftplan functionalities in Kenjo. 

Currently, we do not offer the Shiftplan functionality for custom profiles in Kenjo. If this is something essential for your company, please send an email letting us know to
